When talking about some of the most unique, crazies, eccentric and special characters in NBA history, you have to mention the name, Dennis Rodman. "The Worm" left a huge mark on the NBA world as one of the best defensive and hustle players the league has ever seen. But he was just as active and unique off the court.

Drastic change

Coming into the NBA and becoming a vital part of the Detroit Pistons' "Bad Boys," Dennis was just one shy and quiet kid, only worried about hooping and giving it his all on the court. He would get rewarded with 2 DPOY awards and establish himself as one of the most versatile wings in the game.

But after getting traded from the Pistons to the Spurs, Dennis's life and career would drastically change. From being a skinny, clean-looking, quiet guy to getting buff and covering himself in tattoos, piercings, and crazy hair colors. His production on the court regarding rebounds and defense wasn't suffering, but the outside stuff seemed a bit much for teams.

An organization like the Spurs didn't tolerate that, shipping him to the Bulls, where the misunderstood Dennis found a perfect role for more championships to his name. All the partying, women, outfits, and much more were just a part of Rodman's identity now, and the Bulls accepted him that way, knowing what he would do on the court for them.

That lifestyle sometimes brought him into trouble with the law. When talking with Kevin Hart in an interview a few years ago, Kevin asked Rodman how many times he got arrested, and Dennis gave him a very interesting answer:

"In my lifetime? I'd say over 100. I was having too many parties in my house, and after seven days straight, it was seven days a week. Seven days a week, 24/7."

When you host a party every single night of the week, it's only logical you could get into some trouble frequently. But even still, that's a pretty big number. But Rodman has cooled down in his retirement, mainly staying out of the public eye and being remembered as one of the biggest icons in NBA history.
